  • Wonderful New Years in Charleston

    "We stayed for week on George and Cecy's house with our 3 kids. The house was super clean and was well appointed. We were thrilled to have wireless internet! The owners were very helpful and available for questions. They even had a 3 ring binder full of helpful tips and places to visit while in the Charleston area. The neighborhood is nice to walk through and has a scenic boat ramp and dock it would be even nicer when it is pool season. We walked to the public library one day, what a nice thing for the kids! This location in North Charleston was certainly a great jumping off point to visit the Charleston area. We went downtown to the market area and took a carriage ride, we visited the Yorktown, we explored Sullivan Island, Isle of Palms and Folly Beach. Our favorite excursion was to Charlestown Landing! We certainly had a great New Years in Charleston!"

  • Beautifully Kept Secret

    "We rented the entire house (3 bedrooms) for our bachelorette party and we could not have been happier. Betsy was as charming as her BEAUTIFUL house. Decorated to perfection and everything I expected from a Charleston Carriage House. The garden was even more beautiful than the pictures. I hesitate to write a review as we don't want it to become so busy it is unavailable in the future. We will be back!"

  • You Won't Find a Better Location

    "I first found this loft on VRBO and then found out some family friends had stayed here as well. For the quality of the unit and the location, it was extremely well priced and Matt made our visit painless with excellent instructions. He was very detailed and made himself available 24-7 and was quick to respond. The lost is open and fairly spacious. It could have used a deep cleaning, as it was a bit dusty, but overall it was well stocked and very homey. It is across from a fire station and above a restaurant, so there was a bit of noise at times. But since my husband and I live next to train tracks across from a Cuban restaurant, that didn't bother us a bit. The only thing that did bother us a bit were some noisy neighbors above. The absolute best thing I can say about this place is LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! There was a 24-7 parking deck right across the street and we were able to walk almost everywhere we wanted to go. Your are literally a staircase away from Jestine's kitchen if you're in the mood for amazing fried chicken a collard greens an a couple blocks from all the shopping, restaurants, tours, and night life that IS Charleston. We did venture out of town to Folly Beach and to the Firefly Vodka distillery, which I would highly recommend. They're both just a short car ride away and easily navigable. Overall, our stay was great and if we come back to Charleston in the near future, we'll definitely be staying here again."

  • Amazing location, great apartment!

    "I couldn't recommend this studio apartment highly enough! The location is absolutely perfect, and the apartment itself was clean and beautiful with great attention to detail. If I could've taken the bed home with me I would've, it was that comfortable!"
